Diablo 3 Latency Issues.

Technical Support
1 2 3 21 Next
So, Diablo 3 is nearly unplayable for me lately. I basically have to keep exiting the game and reopening it and waiting like 30 minutes hoping that the latency becomes playable because it's always spiking form 300ms to 2k+ ms. Any time I click something nothing happens until like 2 minutes later.

But I have no other games that have this issue. I admit that my internet is not good at all, but why would Diablo 3 be the only game I'm having latency issues with? Are there any fixes for this or is this purely a Blizzard-side issue? Getting kinda annoyed at this point... :(

Edit: Since this patch, I've now been stuck at 700+ ms and the game is literally unplayable now.
Can't be server side because I don't lag. It's client side.
I meant that it has to do with the way Diablo 3 is utilizing my bandwidth. Because it doesn't make sense that this is the only game that is unplayable for me.

I have the same issue, I have always wondered why WoW and other online games work great but this one does not.
I've seen a few other people with this problem too which makes me curious as to what could possibly be causing this. I have no firewalls up or anything like that.
I have that exact same problem!

game is unplayable and im sad! :(
the foul-up with the patching didn't really help thing's for all. server had to compensate for the load thus sending the latency meter's off the chart's.
Sound to me like the patch Caused all these problems. Hope they fix it soon. Or it's by by 60 bucks
I had SOME latency issues prior to the patch, but after the patch the game is literally unplayable for me now. Half the time I try to start the game it gives me an error, and if I finally do get in a game I click stuff and nothing happens until like 2 minutes later when everything happens at once.
the tracert's do not match up with diablo 3. even world of warcraft is more stable then this ><. needed my break in-between but ain't got because of the lag.
I play normally everyday..but 44 minutes ago, the lag makes impossible to play...
What modem are you people with the latency issues using?? I have a Motorola Surfboard 6121 and this started for me about 6 day's ago and has never got any better. i've replaced all hardware and also tried different machines in my house. I have take my router totally out of the equation by connecting directly to my pc. I've fowarded ports, ive had comcast out and put me on a complete new line. No other game is having this issue. My friend lives about a mile away and is on comcast and is not having any problems. I also replaced my modem 4 days ago hoping it was the modem. Honestly there is nothing else to try. I will just have to wait until November to play when i move.
I have no idea what modem I'm using I'm just plugged into the wall in my apt I guess the internet is shared between the rooms in my apt but no one else is home so there's no torrenting or anything going on.
I can play every other game just fine, (bf3 css etc) all under 30ms ping, but when i comes to d3 i get over 700 ms

thats some bull!@#$!
Since I saw in another post that this could be a temporary problem connecting to Battle.net servers or something, here is my tracert to the Diablo 3 server

bumping so hopefully a blue can make sense of this information although it looks like the connection is just straight up timing out.
Bumping again. Really hoping I can get a reply and get some perspective on this.
Sorry to bump again, I'm just really hoping someone can make sense of my tracert
Same thing is happening with me dude, I think it's the patch's fault. The lag wasn't this extremely bad (it was still bad tho but was practically perfect in the twilight hours pre-patch). Blizzard should definitely investigate the new patch they implemented.
Yep, I'm in the same boat, too. How many disappointed customers will it take to get some kind of feedback on this????
Yes, after the patch my ping has made the game unplayable. Same bad results.
